Boutique food vans are popping up across the country and Suffolk is no exception— with a scattered population living a long way from major centres, it makes sense for the restaurant to come to you.

Here are seven of the best food trucks based in Suffolk.

1. Pete's Pizza

Started in 2017, Pete's Pizza initially expected to do the odd event, but ended up doing loads of events and private parties.

It goes for simple basic food— pizzas topped to order and cooked in 90 seconds, with vegan cheese and gluten free bases available so they can accommodate everyone.

Throughout the summer, Pete's Pizza is based at Shottisham campsite, serving both campers and the general public, though he is also willing to do events.
